Police today unearthed 125 powerful crude bombs from a vacant plot at north Poilur, about 45 km from Kannur, in this politically sensitive district.

The bombs, kept in four gunny bags, were found concealed in a bush at Maliyad Kunnu under the Kolavalloor police station limits by a raiding police party led by Thalassery Dy SP Prakashan, a senior police official said. Top police officials have rushed to the spot.

Police had intensified raids in the area following the death of two RSS activists in a bomb explosion at nearby Cheruvanchery on Nov 10 as the youth were suspected to have been engaged in either making or shifting the crude bombs.

A day after the death of RSS men on Monday last, Police had recovered 18 crude bombs from a private plot, some 100 metres away from the site of the powerful explosion.
